I uploaded a bunch of vintage films from the 1940’s to my Vid.me account. In an effort to get away from YouTube, I won’t be posting them on there. Included in the videos are: The series of Private Snafu, The Commandments For Health by the 1940’s US Military command, a Warner Bro’s vintage-propaganda cartoon, and The Spirit of 1943.
All of them brought me a strong amount of reminiscing about the older America. Which is strange, because that’s the version of America I never got to truly meet.
The Spirit of 1943 (Donald Duck) is interesting to watch from an economist perspective. And interestingly, the American propaganda film sure makes you appreciate the more subtle-nature of modern propaganda.
Private Snafu is just an interesting character. Hard to believe the government could imagine of such a symbol. But, it was long before my time. Things were much different back then, as these films can clearly illustrate.
And what’s the purpose of me posting these? I’m not sure. Maybe to just keep the old films alive. Maybe to allow others to reminisce with me. Or maybe it was to show how rapidly things can change.
Whatever my reasoning, they are posted. So enjoy.

And finally, we have The IRS film – Donald Duck “The Spirit of 1943” (Saving vs Spending):
That’s all, for now!
